Sr

The analysis has found that the Strontium level in the aquarium is low.

For your chosen Habitat we would recommend to also follow the daily dosage advice of Strontium as this should benefit the animals in your aquarium.
3 weeks prior to fragging we would recommend that you double the daily dosage.

Ca

The analysis has found that the Calcium levels are slightly low.

For the animals kept in your your chosen Habitat this is not a significant issue.
We still advise to maintain the level within the recommended range by following the dosage advice as it helps improve the general look of your aquarium.

Cu

The analysis has found an elevated level of Copper in the aquarium.
This could be the result of fish medication.

For your chosen Habitat this is not of concern unless it reaches levels higher than 100ppb

Countermeasure: TRITON DETOX should be applied before the water changes.

Application DETOX: Take activated carbon and Phosphate media out of the system, add 3ml Detox / 100l of aquarium water. After 3 days, put on fresh activated carbon (Phosphate media can now also be introduced again), activated carbon should be changed after 7 days.

Sr

Your Strontium levels are slightly low.

Please dose as recommended in the DOSE tab.

Br

Your Bromine levels are slightly low.

WARNING! Dosage only to be carried out by advanced reef keepers.

Due to the possible hazardous nature of dosing Bromine the dosage amounts include a safety factor to ensure that the risk of overdose is reduced. This may result in further dosing being required with subsequent ICP testing.

Please follow the directions on the Dose tab.

B

Your Boron levels are slightly low.

Please dose as recommended in the DOSE tab.

K

Your Potassium levels are too low.

Please dose as recommended in the DOSE tab.

Ca

Your Calcium levels are slightly low.

Check for accuracy of home Ca test kit if used.

Please dose as recommended in the DOSE tab.

Cu

We have detected copper in your aquarium, this can be a dangerous metal for reef aquariums. Please try to find the reason for the contamination.


To help you in your search for the source of error, we have listed them the most common sources of copper (sorted in descending order of frequency):

1. Contaminated trace element solutions
2. Bio-pellets
3. Contaminated salts
4. Contaminated food
5. Corroding metals or magnets near the water

Countermeasure: TRITON DETOX should be applied before the water changes.

Application DETOX: Take activated carbon and Phosphate media out of the system, add 3ml Detox / 100l of aquarium water. After 3 days, put on fresh activated carbon (Phosphate media can now also be introduced again), activated carbon should be changed after 7 days.

P

The analysis has found a low phosphorus / phosphate level in the aquarium.
In case of problems we recommend to remove/reduce the phosphate absorber from the system and to increase feeding.

For problems with Cyanobacteria, the product that best suits your system is:

TRITON Organic Supplements P Beta

For a fish tank without algae/Cyanobacteria problems the product that is best suited is:

TRITON Organic Supplements P Alpha

Please contact us for further support on hello@triton.de

We recommend the corrective dosage be carried out over 3 days. For the first 2 days the daily dosage should be 1.5ml. On the last day please use 0.07ml.
